I'm assembling this addressable RGBW LED strip setup that is 3m long and 60 LEDs/m. I have found no answer to my two questions on other sites or youtube.
(This is the strip I'm using: https://www.adafruit.com/product/2842?length=3) (5VDC, SK6812)
Every LED draws 80 mA on full brightness. Therefore (80*60*3) the maximum draw of the strip would be 14.4A. I'm definitely not gonna use that much as it has dedicated white LEDs, so let's say that I'll be using 10.8A (60*60*3).
Wouldn't the roughly 11A from the power supply fry the arduino? And can the strip's leads really handle 11 amps?
2.) How would you suggest that someone set this up? I want to be able to run both the arduino and the strip off of the same power supply.
